You keep your toilet bottles and cans out of here, and I won't punch you in the brain!

Hey, you're not talking about that Michigan bottle-deposit scam where you round up bottles here and run 'em out to Michigan are you?

It doesn't work. You overload your inventory and you blow your margins on gasoline. Even running lean and mean you can't crunch the numbers.

Trust me, it doesn't work.

It depends on a few factors. What kind of truck you have and how much will be spent on gas among others. I live in a state that has the 5 cent deposit and if you buy a soda from a nieghboring state that doesn't have the deposit some stores will not honor it, trust me they'll know. Also, if the store does not sell a specific item they probably won't honor the deposit. My advice would be to stick with cans that sell everywhere like coke or pepsi and stay away from all plastic, they'll take up too much room. Keep us posted.

Nina, you're a wonder. I have to tell you, I have never met anybody so efficient. I mean you're just, you're just a marvel of organization. It's like I'm thinking of something, and you're one step ahead of me. Do you, uh ... do you know what I'm thinking about now? Is it, uh, do-able? Wink

It is possible. But then again I do not live where you live. In Australia there is only one state that has the 5c deposit thing and it isn't really worth it if ou buy the bottles just for that. If you look for old bottles on say, a beach then it may be a good idea. I wouldnt do it though.
